Unwelcome conversations - in 1000 Words or Less

A few days ago…okay, twelve or fifteen years ago (the way time is passing it just feels like days), a colleague was in the habit of complaining about his aches and pains and the twenty extra pounds of blubber around his waist. He’d say, “It’s old age, Kev.” He was joking, of course. At that point, we hadn't yet reached what is generally accepted as middle aged and since only teenaged girls believe late thirties is old, blaming age for his aliments didn’t make much sense. I thought (perhaps judgmentally), a more likely culprit was all the time he wasted sitting on the couch watching televised sports. Back then, I had no way of knowing the conversation was fifteen years ahead of his time.
